Daybreak - Time Lapse

Postby sidd finch » Wed Nov 02, 2016 11:41 am

Another time lapse of daybreak. I am experimenting with what I can do to reduce the reflection...

How about a polarizing filter in front of the camera ?

Polarizers can help, but they seldom get rid of all the reflections and they add a stop to the exposure. Have you thought about using a lens skirt? Here's a DIY one.

Wide angle lenses need a larger size skirt than normal or telephoto lenses. Likewise, you'll need a larger size if you are shooting at an angle instead of square to the window.

Thanks for this Bob. I was thinking about using a big piece of black construction paper but this looks like it would be easier to handle.

Ok.... Game On

I do enjoy a time lapse... not really knowing your setup I would suggest either of 3 things,

1) placing the camera right up against the window, but im assuming you'll see more building than area to left hence the angle...

2) open the window..lol kind of kidding coz I assume you would have done this if it was possible, I was thinking if you can hang the camera out of the window...

3)this one I think is probably the best thing you can do.... I call it the cone effect but something like this (could be made with black card to your desired shape) http://www.leefilters.com/images/39-sys ... ood-01.jpg

hope this helps

Nice DIY Bob, a lot better than trying to tape things to the window and then having to clean it off later.

I have an old black t-shirt I am going to use to see if I can get a better image.
